A Gurwin Employee Benefit
Gurwin Jewish Nursing & Rehabilitation Center subsidizes the operation of its on-site childcare center, the Children’s Garden at Gurwin, so that its employees can receive quality, licensed, center-based childcare services at a discounted cost. The Children’s Garden is operated by Bright Horizons Family Solutions.

The Children’s Garden at Gurwin
The Children’s Garden is open 6:45 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. (Future Saturday and Sunday care is planned, as needed). We offer full-, part-, and flex-time scheduling on a fixed or as-available basis, along with Drop-in, Emergency or Back-up Care.
The elegant Children’s Garden is located in Gurwin’s Weinberg Pavilion, and has a full security/safety system. Four nurseries and classrooms are arranged around the Children’s Art Gallery, with supervised access to indoor and outdoor play areas. Nutritious meals are included in the fee.
Intergenerational activities with selected Gurwin Center participants are a special feature of our program. Research shows that this wonderful program component is sure to bring joyous benefits to the children and elders.
Families may borrow books, videos and parenting resources from the Lounge, or attend evening seminars about work-family issues. The Children’s Garden also offers various family fun events; clothing, toy & cookie exchanges, and occasional Parents’ Nights Out.
